Final Post

Clearly, this blog was more about getting pregnant than it was about tracking Quinn's childhood and our parenting adventures. She will be turning 5 in a couple of months and just started pre-K! We honestly have no concept of where the time has gone and it only continues to speed by even faster. Here is a picture of her on her first day: Quinn continues to amaze, amuse, and befuddle us. We are always proud of her and hope that she is as proud of herself! Our journey as parents is still just beginning, though we have come further than we ever dreamed possible. We are excited to announce that we will be getting married in Washington this November now that the federal government recognizes same-sex marriages based on place of ceremony. We hope to get married in Oregon in 2015 on our 15 year anniversary assuming Oregon voters do the right thing next year and change the laws. Quinn is excited as this means she gets to be a flower girl two times! We continue to have conversations about gender and queer families and what those things mean to us and our family. She asks questions when she's curious, though sometimes we volunteer information when she could care less. In her short life time so much has changed in this country (and in some parts of the world) - and we hope will continue to change - so that these conversations and her experiences continue to be positive ones rather than helping her understand people's ignorance around these issues. We took advantage of Quinn's grandparents and great-grandmother being at the beach this weekend. Here's a picture of us there. .
